3 Reasons Why Simple Wedding Decorations are Perfect for Destination Weddings
Thinking of a destination wedding? Not sure how to handle the wedding decorations? Here’s why you should go with simple wedding decorations for your dream destination wedding!
When it comes to wedding decorations, everything has to be perfect. You want to create that magical, romantic space you have dreamed of your whole life – but when you finally get the chance, wedding decorating can feel overwhelming, especially if your dream wedding is somewhere exotic and far away.
As any good wedding coordinator knows, destination weddings tend to speak for themselves. Whether your wedding day is by the seaside or somewhere surrounded by jungle life, exotic locations have a low-maintenance decoration need. You don’t need to dress up the locale with crazy wedding decorations because it’s already perfect.
Here’s why you only need the bare minimum when coordinating decorations for your destination wedding.
The setting is already spectacular.
Whether you’re planning a wedding ceremony by the shore or a wild reception in the jungle, your destination wedding is already gorgeous. Ocean views, luscious mountain tops, or a starry night sky – all you need to make a destination your own is flowers and good lighting. Talk to your wedding coordinator about what flowers are native to the area or what lighting works best in the setting and coordinate those details to make it feel like you want it too without taking away from the reason you chose a destination wedding – the view!
It makes packing easier.
If you have to worry about hauling huge balloon arches and other large wedding decorations on a plane, you’re going to spend more time stressing than celebrating. Simple decor should make any wedding easier, especially destination weddings. Talk to your coordinator about where to get the best services where you’re holding the celebration, like flower arrangements, lighting, table settings, and more. You want to relieve yourself of unnecessary loads – physical and mental.
Simple wedding decorations are eco-friendly.
Confetti, glitter, excessive amounts of balloons – not only can it be tacky, but it can also harm the environment. According to the Huffington Post, it’s estimated that weddings produce 400 to 600 pounds of garbage and 62 tons of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas every year. That mostly comes from decorations like balloons, confetti, and flowers order non-locally. Your wedding coordinator should know the best options for eco-friendly wedding decor. If you’re earth conscious, a simply decorated wedding is the perfect way to plan your day.
Having simple decorations at your wedding doesn’t mean it won’t be spectacular, especially if you go away for an unforgettable destination wedding. Take the stress out of it and go for simple decorating!
